I had the best time last night. My friend Ivy took me to go see Willie Nelson, and I’m still riding high from the experience (no, not that kind of high).
I love Willie Nelson. When I was a kid I had a 45 of On The Road Again. I listen to his music whenever I need a good story. I love singing along to his songs on long drives.
There were three opening acts for Willie: Brandy Clark, Robert Earl Keen, and Dwight Yoakam. I had heard of Dwight Yoakam, but didn’t know any of his songs. I hadn’t heard of the other acts. I loved them all. I think Brandy Clark’s music would be ideal for singing along on road trips. Robert Earl Keen’s music really made me wish I could two-step. Dwight Yoakam dances with a wonky leg and it is incredible to witness. Even if I didn’t get to see Willie I would have been happy with the concert.
Willie performed many of my favorite songs. He did not sing Pancho and Lefty, but he did sing a Tom T. Hall song, which was just as exciting for me.
I had such a fun night. My cheeks hurt from smiling so much. It was so great I don’t even mind that I started the day with a bit of a hangover (2 cans of hard lemonade are apparently enough to do me in).
What is the best show you have ever seen?
